Carbon Revolution (CBR) was the top mover on the ASX today. Shares in the company rose 21.0% to $1.21.
Shares in Carbon Revolution have jumped for the second day in a row after the lightweight wheel manufacturer announced that strong electric car sales is seeing a surge in their tyre sales.
According to its ASX announcement on Friday, quarterly wheel sales were up 109.4% on the corresponding season, or 4,397 wheels were sold.
The company also points to strong growth in the future with the new Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z06 and Z07 and General Motors electric vehicle set to use Carbon Revolutions wheels.
Production for that program has now commenced.
At the time of the vehicle's launch, Corvette's chief engineer Tadge Juechter pointed to superior results due to the tyres.
"It's super light and saves over 40 pounds versus the forged aluminum wheels which are pretty lightweight wheels. Even daily driving you can sense that it's not just lighter, it's stiffer and you can really feel that... on a 2-minute lap it's a second to a second and a half quicker. It's noticeable – equivalent to a fair horsepower increase," he said.
As such, quarterly revenue was $11.4 million, which is up 82.6% on Q1 FY22.
